of terrorism. while some romney advisers argue they should keep their focus on the economy, politico says plans are in the works for mitt romney to deliver a major foreign policy speech shortly after wednesday's debate. what do you think of that? you think he should do that? >> yes. i think, as i said, right after the killing, that wasn't the time to talk about this. >> right. >> now is the time, several weeks later, to talk about it. john heilemann, the lead in "the new york times," mistake in faith and security seen at libya mission before benghazi raid. response to the june bomb raised confidence in local guards. this benghazi story is an absolute mess. i think -- i've heard stuart stevens as saying let's focus on the economy. i think stuart stevens is exactly right. americans don't care as much in the polls about foreign policy. but several weeks later after this, i think it's very legitimate now that the press is going in and a couple of weeks have passed since the ambassador's death, now, yes. i mean, he's got a responsibility to talk about how badly the white house bungled this. >> i thi

is stacked to play in romney's favor. the things romney is accusing obama of owe mismanaging the economy, fast and furious, this banghazi stuff -, that can't be rebutted. what obama is accusing romney of, being a tax cheat, swiss bank accounts, all that kind of stuff, can be rebutted. >> sean: what obama will say -- thus this will be mostly on the economy. obama will say, it's getting better. that was the recovery summer of 2010. >> but romney -- there were a whole lot of people right now who want to vote for romney. want to vote against obama. but they don't want to vote for romney because of all the negatives obama's piled on them which has not been answered. they're sitting on one side waiting for permission to jump over and vote for romney. in the debate, that he's not a monster, that he's a man of integrity and defending himself on this stuff, can absolutely encourage them to jump over and make it possible for them to do that. >> sean: what a joke all weekend, watching the obama people trying to lower expectations. >> yeah, right. >> sean: 2-1. >> let's par remember that most debate
, ok this guy understands business. this guy understands wall street. he understands the economy. but does he understand me? and when they go to the voting booth, they want someone who is going to advance their own economic interests. chris: so it's not just about battling with the other guy, it's selling to the audience as well. let's take a look. for his part to keep the likeability advantage he has over romney, the president has to avoid the kind of condescension we saw him exhibit in that debate with hillary clinton. >> he's very likable. i agree with that. i don't think i'm that bad. >> you're likable enough, hillary. no doubt about it. >> thank you. [laughter] chris: that was a bad moment for the president. >> yeah, it was. he was trying a little towel snapping there but he's in the wrong locker room. it just didn't work. it came off as the essence of arrogant condescension. and the expression, the body language, everything about it. i'm not really looking at you, i'm writing. and that's the sliver of barack obama's character that he can't afford to show if pressured proper
this and the economy still in serious shape many people are predicting a new risession and all of the trouble he had over seas he ought to be in a lot of trouble it is surprising to many people he is ahead . we think that manage will happen. mitt romney is an acceptable enough he is an honorable decent man . people would not have problem changing on him. it hasn't happen. but it hasn't come and that's why people are, a lot of republican are down cast in this state. >> brian: remember john lovitz. i can't believe i am losing to this guy. look at the stats that you would think that president obama is trailing unemployment 8.bon. in terms economic growth. 1.3. that is all-time low. right track, and wrong tract is out of balance. and approval rating under 50 percent. and it is now under 50 percent. >> steve: that is part of the new normal that they write about in the new york post. people are getting used to that and it is it mitt romney's opportunity to say this is the new normal and i am losing to this guy? which guy is going to be. >> gretchen: i argued about gas prices the new normal. why are americ

also want to give them additional tax breaks because they are the drivers of the economy. they produce the most jobs. >> you know what senator obama and adopt in a conversation with joe. we need to spread the wealth around. we will take it joe's money, give it to president obama, and let him spread it around. i want joe the plumber to spread it around. i want small businesses, that would receive an increase in their taxes right now. why would you want to increase anybody's taxes right now? why would you want to do that? when we have such a tough time. the small business people are going to create jobs unless you take the money from them and spread the wealth around. i will not do that in my administration. >> if i could answer the question. number one, i want to cut taxes for 95% of americans. it is true that my current supporter warren could afford to pay a little more in taxes in order to give additional tax cuts to joe the plumber before he was at the point where he could make to hundred $50,000. exxon mobil made $12 billion record profits over the last several quarters. they can af

on who could better handle the economy. in four more, he trails the president. colorado, iowa, new hampshire, ohio. tied at 45 in virginia. there are three states that the president hits the 49% mark, leads on the economy, and romney's favorability. consider those romney's problem states. one state where romney wins on the economy, right side up favorability rating and where the president's job approval is below 49, north carolina, which is why the state seems to lean, everybody thinks at the end of the day romney gets to 50 before the president. as the poll out this morning shows, it is a razor tight race. the president up two among likely voters, 48-46. in nevada, leads by two. new hampshire, leads by seven points. romney launched his presidential campaign there and has a summer home there. we will see. we have three more polls, state polls and big three next week before the debate, a national poll coming out, but you see the environment. one other interesting note on polling, if you average the nine states together in the various leads, almost looks identical to the national pol
. the debate is on domestic policy. 90 minutes is supposed to be devoted to the economy specifically with governing and health care. but we'll see if the general nature of those areas allows libya to come up, which we know the romney folks want to do. debates are as much about style as substance and this is a reality show where obama and romney will meet in the first time in nearly five years before their biggest audience of the campaign. the first 2008 presidential debate between the president and john mccain got seven times the audience of the highest rated 2012 republican primary debate. think about that. seven times. past debates show romney and obama have to worry about cut away shots that are less than flattering. in the past both candidates have come across as irritable, patronizing or disengaged. this was chris christie's advice to the candidates yesterday. >> what you do is go out and be yourself. and people either like it or don't. if they don't, they are going to vote for somebody else. not a tragedy. no one dies. >> finally speaking of debates, there was a barn burner las
